We’ve seen many rumours of a Resident Evil 4 Remake. Yet for months Capcom stayed quiet and gave nothing away. Fast forward to the present day and the June State of Play showcase. So what did Capcom give us? Another highly anticipated Resident Evil remake!
The presentation began with a date, followed by the first images of a game. The title displayed was the official debut of the highly anticipated Resident Evil 4 Remake. So fans who have been waiting for this remake can rejoice: the leaks and rumors were true, and the remake now has a release date. And, as with the previous two remakes, Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, we get subtle changes while maintaining the original essence. This is according to the official blog.
This time, the game is being developed to achieve state-of-the-art quality for a survival horror suitable for 2023, while preserving the essence of the original game. We aim to make the game feel familiar to fans of the series, while also providing a fresh feeling to it. This is being done by reimagining the storyline of the game while keeping the essence of its direction, modernizing the graphics and updating the controls to a modern standard.
Resident Evil 4 Remake. The Release Date And Further Details
As previously stated, the showcase began with a release date. So, for those who, like me, are eagerly awaiting this remake. As of now, the date to remember is March 23rd, 2023. With Dead Space a couple of months prior, it’s a good start to the year for horror fans.
For those who want a refresh of where this fits on the timeline, it takes place six years after the events of Racoon City. Leon is now an agent who reports to the President. His task here is to rescue his daughter. So will you be picking this up in March?. The original I preordered on Gamecube became one of my most loved games, so I will be grabbing this. So, what are your thoughts on the remake? The trailer did only list PlayStation 5 but don’t worry. It will also launch on Xbox Series X/S and PC. This was confirmed on the official trailer.
